Wow, where to start. Are we sure we have been out of high school 30 years? I have moved around alot I guess. I met my husband and we moved to Kansas for about 6 mos. Since we couldn't find Dorothy (lol) we packed up and moved to Florida. We lived in Haines City, Fl for little over a year where I was able to work for Mickey Mouse at the resorts. We then moved to the Atlantic coast of Florida where we stayed for 7 years. We lived in Titusville which is just on the other side of the river from Kennedy Space Center.
Learned alot about Hurricanes, Space Center, Alligators, and Love Bugs while we were there. We thought it was awesome to have our house shake everytime the shuttle went up or to have pictures fall from the wall on the double sonic booms when it came in. I had both my children while we were there. I loved living in Florida but my husband ended up being transferred to Atlanta, GA. Georgia was the last place I thought I would like to live but ended up being the best place for me. I loved the change of season and we still had enough summer months to play. It was a mixture of Michigan and Florida. My children were in great schools there, we lived just outside Atlanta in Buford. I had a great job managing an Internal Medicine practice but.. my husband ended up being transferred again, this time to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Yes we got to greet Hurricane Gustav last week! We had no power, no communication for over a week but what was most upsetting to all of us here was the lack of news coverage to the rest of the world that Baton Rouge had been torn apart!
Louisiana - Big culture shock here. It is like another country but we are starting to get use to it. The food spoils you, it is great. We went back to Atlanta to visit friends last Christmas and ate at a few places that we use to frequent and as we ate we all asked what we thought was so great about the food there! Mardi Gras is the main holiday here I think. Everything stops for Mardi Gras it seems.
Last year seemed to be our worst year ever. My husband was diagnosed with Cancer and the nightmare begins watching him as he goes through his treatments. It really puts life in perspective when you are faced with this ugly disease. Thankfully he is now 6 months cancer free and finally starting to feel like he is alive again. My children had to grow up a little faster emotionally with this also and it has made us alot closer. Andres is still living in Miami, Manny is in his Senior year in High School and Michele is in her Junior year.
I have been having a great time looking at all the people who have posted here already. I am getting excited to fly in next week to see everyone. I have had a couple people keep in touch with me through the years and so it will be great to get together with them again also. I never thought I would be this excited to take a blast to my past! Still can't believe it has been 30 years?!?
